Bhekisipho Twala

Professor in Artificial Intelligence


Currently resides in: Gauteng, South Africa

Born in Sulphur Springs South Africa

A research scientist with over 15 years experience in putting mathematics to scientific use in the form of data comparison, inference, analysis, and presentation to design, collect, and interpret data experiments surrounding the fields of transport, medical, artificial intelligence, software engineering and most recently robotics. A track record of publications in conferences and journals and the ability to communicate scientific ideas to an informed lay audience. Plans for future research work will, of course, be influenced by the ideas and opportunities which present themselves at my employer, but the intention is to continue exploring problems in the areas of machine learning (artificial intelligence) and statistics and be committed to the highest levels of professional and personal excellence.
